OPINION| Liberating Elder| It would not be a day in America without President Trump absolutely ripping into one of the ‘enemies of the people’ after being attacked with a loaded ‘question’.
Today it was NBC’s Peter Alexander. Peter was one of the first reporters to be called on today, and Trump’s reaction did not disappoint.
While there is no question that the Coronavirus is dangerous, it can be argued that panic and fear, have the potential to be just as dangerous.
Mr. Trump held today’s presser in order to give American an update on the status of the Coronapocalypse, seeking to calm the nation down and ensure America that, this too shall pass.
This is why President Trump did not take it sitting down when he saw NBC’s White House reporter seemingly, IMHO, seemed to want to further stoke the fears of the American people.
NBC's @PeterAlexander asks Trump what he'd say to Americans who are frightened.

“What do you say to Americans who are watching you right now who are scared?” Alexander asked President Trump.
“I say that you are a terrible reporter, that’s what I say. It’s a very nasty question. It’s a very bad signal that you’re putting out to the American people,” Trump fired back.
“The American people are looking for answers and looking for hope. You’re doing sensationalism,” Trump added.
“You might want to get back to reporting” the President said. “You ought to be ashamed of yourself.”
Trump then went on to attack Comcast, the corporation which is the parent of the National Broadcasting Corporation (NBC).
Carmine Sabia at The Sabia Report reported:
‘Shortly after Alexander’s question another reporter asked something similar of the president, but this time the president’s response was more measured.
“My message to the American people is that there is a very low incidence of death ― you understand that ― and we’re going to come through this stronger than ever before,” President Trump said.
“If you happen to get it, it is highly unlikely ― it’s looking like it’s getting to a number that is much smaller than people originally thought in terms of the ultimate problem, which would be death.
“My message to the American people is number one, you’ve done an incredible job. … There is tremendous hope,” he said.
Earlier in the day the president said he was cutting off the border with Mexico, something his Homeland Security chief said before.
The White House is going to close the Southern border with Mexico after it had previously closed the Northern border with Canada.
Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf said that the Southern Border will close on Friday except to essential travel and cargo.
“We’re looking at both our northern and our southern border,” he said when he spoke to reporters outside of the White House.
He said that the authorities are looking into “really looking at limiting non-essential travel across that border.
The White House has also called for all Americans who have travelled abroad to come home immediately as it cannot guarantee they will be able to come back later.’
A recent poll conducted by ABC showed that 55% of Americans approve of the job President Trump is doing in response to the Chinese virus.
Do you approve of the job Trump is doing thus far?
